Induction of lung and exocrine pancreas tumors in F344 rats by tobacco-specific and Areca-derived N-nitrosamines.
The tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) and 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanol (NNAL), as well as the Areca-derived N-nitrosoguvacolineExpand

Chemoprevention of colon carcinogenesis by dietary curcumin, a naturally occurring plant phenolic compound.
Human epidemiological and laboratory animal model studies have suggested that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs reduce the risk of development of colon cancer and that the inhibition of colonExpand

Inhibitory effect of Bifidobacterium longum on colon, mammary, and liver carcinogenesis induced by 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline, a food mutagen.
The inhibitory effect of lyophilized cultures of Bifidobacterium longum on 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline (IQ)-induced carcinogenesis was investigated in male and female F344 rats. BeginningExpand

A study of tobacco carcinogenesis: effect of the fat content of the diet on the carcinogenic activity of 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone in F344 rats.
3 Epidemiological studies indicate that the risk of cigarette smokers for cancer of the lung and of the pancreas is influenced by the fat content of the daily diet. In a long-term bioassay (24Expand

Dose-response study of the carcinogenicity of tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines in F344 rats
SummaryTobacco and tobacco smoke contain relatively high amounts of four tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines. Of these, N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN), 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK),Expand

Chemoprevention of colon carcinogenesis by sulindac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent.
Epidemiological and laboratory animal model studies have suggested that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs reduce the risk of development of colon cancer. The present study was designed toExpand

3-(Methylnitrosamino)propionitrile: occurrence in saliva of betel quid chewers, carcinogenicity, and DNA methylation in F344 rats.
3-(Methylnitrosamino)propionitrile (MNPN), a potent carcinogen in F344 rats, was detected for the first time in the saliva of betel quid chewers at levels ranging from 0.5 to 11.4 micrograms/liter.Expand

Bifidobacterium longum, a lactic acid-producing intestinal bacterium inhibits colon cancer and modulates the intermediate biomarkers of colon carcinogenesis.
The human colon can be described as a complex microbial ecosystem, comprising several hundred bacterial species. Some of these enteric bacteria are beneficial to the host and have been shown to exertExpand

Comparative tumorigenicity of benzo[a]pyrene, 1-nitropyrene and 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine administered by gavage to female CD rats.
Agents that are ubiquitous in the environment and are known inducers of mammary cancer in rodents can be regarded as potential causes of human cancer and need to be evaluated more completely.Expand

The biological significance of tobacco-specific N-nitrosamines: smoking and adenocarcinoma of the lung.
In the U.S., there has been a steeper rise of the incidence of lung adenocarcinoma than of squamous cell carcinoma of the lung among cigarette smokers. Since 1950, the percentage of all cigarettesExpand
